NASHVILLE, TENN. (JULY 07, 2021) Worship leaders and songwriters Pat Barrett and Dante Bowe collaborated on a stirring ballad, "Nothing / Something," which garners attention for its powerful message. In our world where we can tend to measure ourselves or define our worth by how many followers, likes, views we have on our social media platforms, or struggling for identity or our voices to be heard, the lyrics of “Nothing/Something” remind us in the end, loving ourselves and loving others is what matters…nothing else. Watch the beautiful live music video performance above. 
 
If I can’t love my neighbor like I love myself
If I won’t move when my brother cries out for help If I’m too proud to forgive before the sun goes down
Then this life that I’ve been living what does it mean now
At best it all means nothing Without love it all means nothing - lyrics from "Nothing / Something"
 
“In the end, what truly matters? We all want our lives to mean something," shares Pat Barrett. "I think that’s why the message of this song hits me so hard. For me, it cuts through the noise of shallow, self-obsessed living and opens me up to a higher perspective. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and feel the sorrow of meaninglessness. It doesn’t have to be that way. Jesus presented a path to deep eternal joy and meaning rooted in divine love. And that message doesn’t have a shelf life. It’s timeless. And even more, it’s eternally significant. Writing and singing this song with Dante was such a powerful experience. For me, this song has been a beautiful confrontation to any message that promises soul fulfillment apart from love.”
 
Since the release of the song, it has been gaining online traction. It is the top-performing video on Barrett's YoutTube channel above his No. 1 single "Build My Life." Currently, the video has 435.5K views on FaceBook and YouTube as well as 485k audio streams to date.
 
"'Nothing/Something is such a special song," states Dante Bowe. "When Pat asked me to feature, I was honored. This song will stand as a constant reminder of the fact that we are all called to be like Jesus. Love is who Christ is. Without love, we wouldn’t be here. Without love, we wouldn’t have freedom. Without love, it all means nothing. With love, we can fulfill our purpose as people surrendered to the Lord. Love is the cause. With love, life is worth living.” 
 
Earlier this year, Barrett release his 17 track studio project, Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly, (Bowyer & Bow / Capitol Christian Music Group). He followed that release with a special live EP Nothing / Something (Live), which features songs from the new studio project with guest artists like Mack Brock, Chris Tomlin, and this new song with Dante Bowe.
 
In September he will be headlining his "Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly - Worship Nights Tour” (produced by Transparent Productions and sponsored by Food for the Hungry) followed by the "Singalong Tour" with the powerhouse lineup of Barrett, Phil Wickham and Brandon Lake for an in-person, one of a kind worship atmosphere featuring both solo and collaborative performances.
